Review summary

I would definitely choose this cruise again, but with a Balcony. Beautiful Ship, Delicious food, Very Relaxing, totally worth it. Book excursions, they seem expensive when booking, but it will be worth it.

The "DJ" was a playlist... not much DJ actually happening. She should have played more contemporary music after like 12:30am. There were very few young Adults on the cruise... we wanted to have fun, but the club catered to 50 and 60 year olds ALL THE TIME!!! we would arrive at the same time every night and the same song was playing... Every night. We were in the Dominican Republic for heavens sakes... play some Bachata, Merengue, Salsa. Play some Pop music from the past 5 years that is not just PitBull. Some hiphop, some R&B. I was disappointed with the club experience.

Service and Staff

Julio was polite and efficient... I have never been on Princess, but I have been a long time Cruiser. Does Princess not do Towel animals? We like to take afternoon naps and wake up at 9am or 10am and he seemed a little frustrated with our schedule choice.
